    I like your front bumper. That little bit of chrome along the top looks good. I also like the red dash and interior trim.

    looks sweet!!! i love your X. When are you notching the frame in the back to get the back as low as the front? Defintely shave the door handles if you are gonna go through the trouble of changing em. Keep up the good work.

    I love your truck. Can't wait to see pics of the rear notched frame and you should definitly shave the door handles along with the tailgate and get a custom roll pan too

    Hey I am curious to know about your dual electric fans.
    Looks like you have a 10-12" Hayden in front of the radiator, what's behind? Also do you have a dual battery setup or a upgraded alternator to handle the two fans? Any problems with them cooling the truck on hot days?

    Thanks

    Ok thanks for all the input. As for the door handles I would like to keep some kinda handle there as it is my daily driver and my daughter which is 2.5yrs old has to get in and out too. So handles are a good thing, although I would love to shave them. The rear is gonna be Notched as of right now it is on air shocks and not e-nuff lift or drop. It is parked for now the front is under construction and the same with the rear. I am shave'n the gate and I am putting in a custom 3rd led brake light that will be painted over, why painted over you ask, cause when not on it cant be seen and when it is it shines through. I will have more pics on the web page so keep checking back. The paint will prob be about the same only maybe with a touch of kandy in it, to deep'n the color. If I paint the visors they will stand out to much I think. Fans are a 12" and 16" the 12 is powered by the compressor relay. 16 is on a electric t-stat and relay. No alt changes yet, factory is still kicking, but I do have the Optima batt. I also have 1200+ watts of power for the system. Keep checking to see that...... Thanks, RJ68

    Are you sticking with the leaf springs in back? You said the front is under-construction, what are you working on? I've been contemplating a Mustang II IFS on my Gen 1 X.
